    Have had to take a hopefully short break this week...sidelined by minor injury.

    After running a 10K race on Sunday the 29th (very happy with the time, beat goal by over a minute) my right ankle felt a bit off and instead of slowing down I kept up with my regular morning runs. Mistake...by the Friday run I was limping through (still kept a decent pace) and I tried a quick run on Sunday but spent most of that hobbling along as well.

    Know it needs a rest to heal but I feel lazy. There are a few 5K races I want to do next month, hoping I can get back up to speed quickly.

    In week 4 of a training plan for my first half marathon...long runs are now at/over 10 miles. Have to resist the temptation to try running faster than I should, although for the long runs that certainly isn't an issue. Know a lot of folks are more hard core (I'd like to pace out at a "leisurely" 10:00/mile but finishing is the top priority) but any experiences with training would be useful.

    Got in just under 122 miles in May. Will be hard to match that distance in June because I'll be on vacation one week and getting training runs in will be a challenge. This coming Sunday's long run will be 13 miles and I'm not concerned about making it...as long as I go slow enough.

    Do not see myself running more than one half marathon, the time requirements for all of the training are just a bit much. I'm already far enough behind on the DIY projects as it is and there's camping to be done as well...

    I just received a Garmin Forerunner10 runners watch for my birthday! While I haven't taken it out yet, it looks like I can finally track speed, distance etc... Hopefully I can put it to good use this summer while training for hockey and of course skiing.

    I'm looking to get a few good 10k's in this summer.

    Actually got in more miles in June than in May (129.3) but it was mainly due to a 14 miler on Sunday. That last long run was tough...got out too late in the morning and was overheated and had to briefly walk at about mile 12. Whatever doesn't kill you simply makes you stranger...

    I'm determined to run the half marathon race but I just do not see how people can do marathon training and have a life...even getting in the 30-35 miles a week for the HM training is a real time suck.

    Not in any event...but is great around 4:30-5am in summer....more like between brisk walk-jog-run.
    Have to force myself to get out before the temps heat up and any bugs wake up, but the headnet is always nearby.

    I just started doing p90x3 about 6 weeks ago. Not super consistently but regularly. And I feel great again. My diet sucks but the workouts are really good, and only 30 min a day which is much easier than the full hour p90x the original requires. Lots of squats and leg workouts that will be really good for skiing.

    I wish I would have waited for X3, I like the original but yes its time consuming.....but gets the job done if you eat clean. Im doing T25 right now, cant say Im as motivated with Saun T as I am with Tony but its a decent 30 minute workout.My problem is consistency right now........
    The squats and working your core / In plank really works you out...yes should be great for skiing !

    I may return to P90x with Insanity for my cardio if I cant stay focused with T25.....
